Do you need to fulfill your Continuing Education Credit (CEU) requirements? Consider attending the 2017 Conservation Tillage Conference on Dec. 5-6 in Willmar, MN. Ten CEU’s will be available at the 2-day conference, many in the Soil and Water category. Hurry, early bird prices will end tomorrow, November 21.

This conference emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science. Learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. Hear from long-time no-till and reduced tillage farmers as they share their experiences, so you can be spared the same hard-learned lessons.

The 2 day conference will open with a keynote address from Jerry Hatfield, Director of the ARS National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment. Jerry will discuss how to improve soil resilience to best manage climate extremes and how good soil enhances crop productivity and yield stability.

The closing keynote speaker is the meteorologist for Valley News Live and Ag Director for Ag News 890, Mick Kjar. Mick will discuss his farm visits across the Upper Midwest and the creative farmers he has met over the years.

More than 20 vendors representing equipment, and providing educational information will be on-site throughout both days.

Early bird fee is $140 for the full conference. Prices will rise to $180 after November 21, 2017. Register online at DIGtheCTC.com or call 320-235-0726 x2001.
